The UK's Intellectual Property League Table

ENTER THE UK'S FIRST IP LEAGUE TABLE

Welcome to the UK’s first Intellectual Property ("IP") League Table compiled by BQ Magazine in association with Metis Partners, an award-winning IP solutions firm. 

New IP100 logo Apr 2016

The IP League Table will be published across the UK and will profile and rank innovative companies within the private sector, highlighting those which have significantly invested in their IP in the form of IP creation, IP management policies, R&D activities and IP commercialisation.

THE IP LEAGUE TABLE & IP100

The IP League Table will be an annual ranking of companies based on a rating of their IP asset strength and track record in exploiting IP. The process involves an assessment of IP-specific data linked to the following IP asset classes: brands, software, patents, trade secrets and critical databases. The research team will use its proprietary process to calculate an IP score and subsequent ranking for each company.

The top scoring companies will be published in the Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks IP100, an annual ranking of businesses which are considered to be the most effective at commercialising their IP assets.

WHO CAN APPLY?

The IP League Table is open to all UK businesses and is free to enter. The Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks IP100 will be published annually as part of a special IP report in BQ Magazine.

WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY?

The IP League Table will provide a platform for gaining recognition for the investment you have made in IP, whether you are using this to:

- Boost the exit valuation of your business
- Improve access to potential new markets
- Protect your existing market share
- Create new barriers to entry

IP also has the ability to play an important role in transforming funding options available to your company, as IP assets can now be used to raise finance, realise value on the balance sheet or restructure debt.
